Yusen Logistics Expands Air Freight Forwarding Operations in Mexico

Yusen Logistics opens two offices at the Mexico City Airport.

Yusen Logistics (Mexico) S.A. DE C.V. opened two offices at the Mexico City Airport on June 1. By establishing a base on the airport front lines to manage its own air transportation operations, the company aims to realize competitive freight procurement and detailed transportation management of imported and exported freight.

With the rapid growth of the automotive industry and increase in imported freight in Mexico, the need for detailed transportation management is rising. To respond to this demand, Yusen Logistics has opened a “Customs Office” for air import within the free trade zone of Mexico City Airport. Until now, the company conducted these operations through an agency, but by managing these operations internally, it will realize the smooth implementation of various kinds of transportation control, such as checking freight status within airport transit shed, ensuring efficient customs clearance and supervising loading of trucks.

In addition, a “cross dock office” for air export has been opened outside of the airport. By taking over tasks previously handled by an agency, such as negotiating freight charges with airlines and issuing air waybills, Yusen Logistics will provide competitive freight charge procurement and a high quality transportation operation. Looking ahead, the company plans to further improve the quality and marketing power of its air transportation service for freight departing from and arriving in Mexico by arranging a similar structure at Guadalajara and Monterey airports.

Yusen Logistics (Mexico) was established in 2008 and employs around 100 people, providing logistics services through five bases, including the headquarters in Mexico City, branches in Monterey and Celaya, and the two aforementioned airport offices. Its cross-border trucking operation ships items around 15,000 times between the U.S. and Mexico per year, while domestically, it also improves its services such as by providing milk-run transportation for auto manufacturers.

Yusen Logistics positions Mexico as a priority region in the Groups mid-term business plan “GO FORWARD, Yusen Logistics -Next Challenges-“, and aims to further expand the network in future.

RoadOne Intermodal Logistics selects ThinkLite to retrofit Randolph Massachusetts facility.

Natick, Massachusetts (PRWEB) May 26, 2015

On any given day, dozens of trucks pass through the checkpoint at RoadOne Intermodal Logistics, loading and offloading freight in its expansive warehouse facility. With long operating hours typical of a warehouse environment, electric consumption for RoadOne is significant. With the recently imposed electric rate increases for Massachusetts businesses, the cost of lighting the RoadOne facility was expected to increase by over 30%.

Our business runs on very tight margins, said Ken Kellaway, President and CEO of RoadOne. Looking at an electric rate increase this significant in 2015, we set our sites on preserving our margins, and thats why we selected ThinkLite to do a lighting retrofit of not only our warehouse, but also of our corporate offices and operations adjacent to the warehouse.

Mike Andersen, ThinkLite Vice President, North American Sales met with Kellaway and his team to develop a plan for the ThinkLite retrofit. The ThinkLite solution is unique as we have developed breakthrough LED and induction lighting technologies that allow us to retrofit existing fixtures with new highly efficient lamps.

Typically, the cost of converting a facility of this size to energy efficient lighting requires replacement of the fixtures, and that makes the cost extreme, if not prohibitive. ThinkLite proposed simply changing the bulbs keeping the cost of the project manageable and the payback period short- only 24 months.

ThinkLite retrofit existing 400-watt metal halide lamps in the warehouse with custom 200-watt Induction lamps that brought significant improvement to the overall lighting quality. When we were told our energy consumption in the warehouse would be cut in half and we saw how much brighter the warehouse was during the demo, it was an easy decision, said Kellaway.

For the corporate and office environment, a variety of fluorescent lamps including traditional T8 as well as U-shaped lamps were replaced with ThinkLites revolutionary driverless LED T8 and LED U Shape tubes that fit in directly into the existing fixtures, and have a lifespan of up to ten years with little or no degradation of lighting quality.

ThinkLite did a remarkable job from start to finish and even secured a 70% project rebate from our electric utility, said Kellaway. We have a network of over 40 facilities nationwide and we look forward to working with ThinkLite on a retrofit plan that will secure RoadOne electric savings year in, year out.

Any business with the need for great lighting and the desire to significantly reduce its electricity cost will benefit from ThinkLite, said Andersen. We are pleased to be RoadOnes lighting partner and look forward to a long lasting and mutually beneficial relationship.
